The Hollywood Reporter’s Deborah Younger wrote in his assessment, “It’s the common story of a youth who goals for the celebrities and finds himself along with his ft tied to earth — and perhaps that’s not a nasty factor. With one eye out to successful competitions, the singer-in-training, Sharad (Modak), simply matches into the narrative mould of films like Whiplash and A Star Is Born as he research below a fierce disciplinarian and sacrifices his personal life to good his artwork.”
Selection’s Jay Weissberg famous, “For all its specificity, grounded in Khayal music, the movie’s universality lies in the best way it conveys the internal struggles of a musician conscious she or he could by no means be adequate, similar to an artist, dancer or author stricken by fears of mediocrity.”
Indiewire’s Eric Kohn opined, “Tamhane does such a effective job of bringing particular person encounters to vivid life that it’s unlucky when the film breaks that spell by way of flashbacks.

That’s as a result of its protagonist, Sharad Nerulkar (Aditya Modak), is steeped in its traditions, dwelling and respiration its phrasing, selecting his manner by way of an apprenticeship that’s been recognized to final a lifetime.”
Collider’s Siddhant Adlakha famous, “The movie’s very cloth feels mystical and metaphysical. Its music reverberates, as if off the partitions of a holy web site. Watching it appears like floating in some unseen, unstated realm every time Sharad takes a step ahead in his search (although we’re quickly yanked again to actuality with every step again). The plot little question facilitates this oscillation, veering between transient moments of musical transcendence, and Sharad’s insecurity about his place in a altering world.”
